Celebration time... Again ! (with Give-away)



Well after the first celebration party organised to celebrate a couple of events amongst which my 100th follower, it's only natural I come up with something to celebrate the 200th (which might very well be Joe Kushner).
First things first, I'd like to express my most sincere thanks to you people who take the time to comment and follow blogs to list them in your own corner of the interwebz, to make them live so this hobby doesn't get like masturbating in the open. All this energy to share is what makes a comuunity for me.
THANK YOU !

Those who were in the first 100 might remember that I offered to convert a model selected by contestants from a list of models who don't get enough attention from me. Those models could be seasoned with 2 flavours.

Here's the time travelling gunslinger elf mage, Warlord Paul won last year.
Well let's take a formula that worked the first time (25 people entered the competition) and make it better !



Here are the models :


Nothing really fancy amongst all that if we're being honest right ? This year I wanted to go a little farther and only use damaged models on top of unloved ones !
Let's see what YOU can make ME do with those !

Let me get the rules clear once again :

You just have to be a follower of this blog and then write a little comment in this post mentionning whatever miniature from the lot you want and 2 words to your liking. It can be anything really; just consider you pick up a model as main base and you add 2 "flavours" to it, you can go really far with that and I expect some challenging flavours from you people.
I'll then make a list of entries and randomly generate a winner who will receive the converted, painted model (according to the 2 accompanying words).

To sum up :

1) You have to be a follower of this blog
2) Name the miniature you like and 2 words to give a special flavour to the model (anything from communism to banana, Higgs particle or whatever)
3) I'll randomly generate a winner from the entries
4) I'll convert and paint the model chosen by the victor ensuring the 2 "flavour" words are visible on the final result.
5) I'll send the result to the winner and we'll all be good to go onto more adventures !

NEW RULE : if you want and feel a little daring or nasty, you can skip the model selection and choose a third "flavour", this will mean I'll choose whatever model I can (from those above or not) to make something that complies with your rules.

I'll wait for the entries to stop entering (that should take a week or less) and then will announce the results (with plenty of charts and excel sheets like last time).


Astopath : ... and therefore we should attack here. Fine by you gents? I say the meeting is over and we go get a drink it's all on JB's tonight.

Marine Statham: Fuck yeah, I'm dry as a Tallarn whore.

Eldar, I could use a little tomato juice I have to say.

Squat : (sigh) yeah, let's get some pints I'm starting to feel weird, I think I'm sobering up.

Imperial quard : So why is that it's the place to attack again ?

Marine Gonzales (in the back on the left) : Are thes eguys moving or what, I frigging need to take a piss!

Marine Cortez (in the back on the right) : Shaddap, it's nearly over.

      By the way you chose 3 flavours with your model, you either have to let one out or let me decide about the model ;)

    2. Hmm, it seems Google is playing tricks. I'm following you as "Wachinayn", which is my blogger account. As a pre-merger of Google and Blogger I've problems appearing on followers list.

  23. Congrats on the milestone!

    OK: I choose the mounted knight with the lance all the way on the right, and my flavor words are Disgrace, Reliquary. Not incredibly tough, but could be interesting.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Thanks Odie.
      Disgrace, reliquary ? Well that seems like a solid idea to me. Not incredibly tough as you say but quite open and it can lead to something really nice I think.
